Interplanetary dust (IPD) scatters solar radiation which results in the zodiacal light that dominates the celestial diffuse brightness at optical and near-infrared wavelengths. Both asteroid collisions and cometary ejections produce the IPD, but the relative contribution from these two sources is still unknown. The low resolution spectrometer (LRS) onboard(More)
We have synthesized three silicon phthalocyanine dyes with different hydrophobic substituents in order to control surface energy in the solid state, aiming at selective loading of the dyes into blend films of poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) and polystyrene (PS). These three dyes are differently located at P3HT domains, at P3HT/PS interface, and at PS domains,(More)
